It's very good, I personally love the Fire Service & everything about it so I found this museum very interesting my only complaint is that it isn't long enough!

I would thoroughly recommend the whole RAF history experience. An excellent way to spend a very interesting few hours. For ex service personnel a trip down memory lane. If you are lucky you may even get a glimpse of the famous red arrows.

There were 30 members arrived to be guided around this site. Over the years we have been to many other venues, and met lots of interesting people, but this was outstanding. It was very well organised, and it was so educational, but enjoyable.
